V-core voltage in BIOS wont apply in Windows (CPU-Z) - Heritage overclocking i5 - 2500K
Hello. After many years of great service I decided to try to overclock my old i5-2500K a little bit. To get some better performance in heavy cpu games which I play. Although this is my first overclocking I read a lot of articles and forums etc. So I think that I'm well prepared. But I've encountered weird problem with my v-core voltage. I was able to hit the 4.1GHZ with the stock voltage 1,260 and wanted to go little bit higher I put there 1,270 and 4,2 GHZ I got BSOD during prime 95 test and very quickly when I loaded P3D game. I checked my BIOS and it says 1,270 then I turned on CPU-Z and it shows constantly 1,260 and sometimes it drops to 1,248. I tried different higher numbers and it lets me set them in BIOS but it wont shows in CPU-Z and I would like to set them higher. I know that my MB is capable of doing it when I let the voltage on auto it was hitting 1,336 all the time..
